According to the Federal Government’s Transparency in Coverage rule, plans and issuers must make public machine-readable files containing certain pricing information. These machine-readable files include negotiated rates for in-network providers and allowed amounts and historical billed charges for out-of-network providers.
This information contained in this Machine-Readable File may be difficult to access without certain technology.
These files may be large and require a computer that can download at least up to 1TB (terabyte) of data. Most modern hard drives store half of this amount of data.
